Ping introduce Ketsch putter

The Ketsch putter is the latest innovation to land from Ping, with the brand saying it offers unprecedented distance control, extreme forgiveness and accurate alignment.

It’s the newest model to benefit from variable-depth grooves, which produce consistent results across the face. Milled into the face, they ensure ball-speed consistency whether the ball is struck in the centre, heel or toe. The grooves are deepest in the centre and get progressively shallower towards the perimeter.

“Our research shows that the head shape promotes extremely consistent alignment for the majority of golfers." - John A. Solheim, Ping chairman and CEO

With the revolutionary racing stripe in the new i25 driver and fairways having been born out of putter alignment research, it’s no surprise Ping has loaded the Ketsch up with a great alignment aid, too. It has three contrasting white lines extending from the back to the front of the putter head to make aiming easy.

“What really stands out about the Ketsch is the captured look it provides at address, inspiring confidence and promoting a consistent stroke, the key to holing more putts,” said John A. Solheim, Ping chairman and CEO.

“It has three white, contrasting alignment aids extending from the top of the matte-black crown. The centre line runs all the way to the back to make aiming easy.

“Our research shows that the head shape promotes extremely consistent alignment for the majority of golfers. Those factors, combined with our revolutionary variable-depth grooves and a high MOI, will help golfers putt more consistently.”
